bad ass organizing in madras (chennai), india — sex workers are learning karate!  the first round of sex workers training in karate is almost through, and now 300 women are better armed to kick assailants asses!  the next class is 500 people.

from the bbc tamil service:

They trained together for nearly five hours a day, mostly learning how to fight. Now the women say they feel more able to protect themselves.

“Even though I may not be able to attack a group of five men when they attack me, I am fully confident now that I can escape,” one sex worker, Santhi (not her real name), told the BBC Tamil service.

“I think I can easily handle one man at any given time.”
